't come -- i don't know what else -- i don't know? i don't know. there might be like a coat hanger left in my closet, i don't. i don't know what's left. counselor, i made mistakes and that's it. i don't know what else i can say, counselor. i have not missed a day down here and i have one of the best attendance records ever. i'll put my record against anyone else's so i'm not going anywhere, counselor. that's all i can say. i answered your question. i can't get into what's before the courts now, but on the advice of my counsel, if you want to talk to dennis morris, you're more than happy to talk to him. he has said do not talk to the police. >> no, no, can i answer the question? >> allow counselor thompson to ask if question. >> i get to ask the questions, thank you. you get to answer. >> i'm answer, but you don't want to listen. >> you're not being truthful. >> i'm being truthful. have you been to that house? i have no interest in being in that house. i'm not a crack user. >> so a 78-year-old mother is a crack user in that house? >> you have stated on numerous occasions to use your word
a year preparing for the trial, devastated by the outcome. >> of course, i'm disappointed, but i don't have any comments right now. >> reporter: macneill faces 15 years to life for the murder of his wife of 30 years. >> what do you want to say to michelle right now? >> i love you, michele. i'm glad we could do this for you, and i felt her with us in there. >> just a short time ago, and now other news on a case we're watching, the u.s. navy christening its newest aircraft carrier. >> i christen the united states ship gerald r. ford. may god bless the ship and all who sail her. >> "u.s.s. gerald ford" was unfailed today. the president's daughter smashed the bottle of sparkling wine against the hull of the ship. dick cheney and donald rumsfeld who both worked for ford were at the ceremony. the ship is projected to remain in service until 2057. >>> senator ted cruz in the hot seat. >> i've been reading a lot about you lately, and they describe you as aggressive, arrogant and abrasi abrasive. accurate? >> that was just the first question from "the tonight show" host jay leno. the senator'
not have made that promise or been clearer about it, don't you think? >> he absolutely should have been vaguer in his statement. but the job of people in congress, at least in my view, not to worry about word smithing but make the best possible policy. the affordable care act struck the right balance of trying to minimize the disruption to people having insurance to a system that's very popular, nondiscriminatory insurance system is number one thing people want to see out of the law. people in congress need to recognize it involves trade-offs. congress people don't want to make the trade-offs. >> one of the issues that i heard before president obama made this announcement today people in his administration said that allowing individuals to keep their policies even if they didn't meet the standards set by obama care would undermine obama care. do you agree? >> i believe that something like the landrieu bill or upton bill would have undermined obama care because they're open-ended so people can keep their plans forever. what that would mean is rate shock in 2015 and ongoing problem of hig
. we just don't know if they will get involved at this point. but we do know that local police and sheriff departments are looking into this. >> are investigators are saying anything about whether witnesses have said whether anyone was out to get them, whether there were any threats against that family? >> the shocking part of that investigation over the years was how no one saw the family leave. there are no witnesses to say that the family left. no one saw them leave in the middle of the night or whatever hours they did leave. that's the puzzling point. also as you mentioned, those two children have not been positively identified by dna yet. >> nick valencia, appreciate that. much more ahead in the "cnn newsroom," president obama may be losing support from some democrats. how he can navigate his way out of the this mess. we'll talk to a man who knows a lot about white house troubles. and our jeanne moos has her memories of the assassination of john f. kennedy. what her story focus us. >>> and how do you learn $98,000 in cash. one woman managed to do just that but a very hones

started rision. i don't know what happened to them. the devastation across the city of 200,000 people is widespread. winds upwards of 250 kilometers an hour leaving a trail of destruction. this is now a city on edge. no pow per, food and water running out and medical supplied almost gone. one hospital is the only functioning medical facility in the city. they can't admit anymore patients there is no room just first aid in the most difficult conditions. >> we hardly have anything left to help people with. we have to get supplies in immediately. a block away from the hospital the desperate search for food and water lead to looting. as you can see the crowds have been forming around the stores taking anything they can. air conditioning units, plastic toys anything is coming out of the stores. people are climbing up to get to the second floor of a department store to get what they can. it took a full day before help arrived. the response so far has not been nearly enough. this was nature at it's most frightening. a display of force that has smashed the lives of so many people. there is ju
. >> translator: i don't need a lot of clothes, just one shirt. that's all i'm asking for. >> as more that 600,000 filipinos now seeking shelter, many are haunted by what haiyan took from them. one mother talked to the philippine daily inquirer about seeing her daughter die. quote, just let go, save yourself, said the girl, whose body was pierced by wooden splinters. i was holding her and kept telling her to hang on, i was going to bring her up, but she just gave up. as we know now as we see the pictures, haiyan may turn out to be the strongest storm on record. it sustained winds as strong as 195 miles per hour. sturdy evacuation shelters were no match for a storm surge as high as 16 feet. as the storm crossed the string of philippine islands, huge walls of water just pushed ashore, carrying debris and people within it. but the danger is far from over. i want to bring in chad myers. chad, another storm on the way, right? >> yeah, another minor storm. but nothing's minor when your house is in ruin. when everything is slammed on the ground. i mean, this wind, even if it's 35 or 40 miles per hour
to make this law work better. but there are those, frankly, who don't want it to work at all. if those on the other side are willing to sit down in a constructive fashion, move us toward our goal making health insurance available to more and more americans and reducing costs, that's a good positive thing to do. i would say to president clinton, if we can bring that bipartisan group together, wook start to solve some of the problems we're facing >> now, that last part of what he said is critical. if we can bring people together. that is not -- that is a lot easier said than done. what is already happening on capitol hill is republicans who run the house have already got legislation they plan to have a vote on later this week saying if you like your health care plan, you can keep it. and there are some senate democrats, including mary landrieu and a few others up for re-election next year who have legislation along those lines. however, seeing something that could pass the senate, pass the house that they could actually agree on is a big question mark. i think at this point, the only way

legislation offered later today. we don't have the details yet but that is the whole reason why there was such a time crunch for the president making the announcement he did yesterday, because in the house, the dynamic is different. they feel that they have to offer something because later today, as you mentioned, carol, there is going to be a republican vote on the house floor on legislation democrats say would completely gut obama care so politically they want to have an alternative for democrats to vote for, so they don't support a republican bill they simply don't like because they feel politically they have to. >> we'll check back with you at the half hour. dana bash thank you so much. >>> congress decides what they want to do, the president is going to work on his fix with some of the nation's top insurance executives this afternoon. it's a tough road especially when california's insurance commissioner says he cannot stop people's policies from being canceled. >> unfortunately neither state nor federal law allow me to stop the cancellations. there's no provision of federal
don't like the upton plan but they haven't been saying that about the landrieu plan, which is why i think you're going to be seeing those officials talking with senate democrats about that proposal later today. the white house, by the way, has said that the president will come up with a fix for some of this "sooner rather than later" so we're going to be seeing some news on that front i think in short order. >> he's got big problems to fix, because chris i'll pose this question to you. 1 million people in california have already had their policies canceled, so how does the president fix that? >> well, carol, that is a big problem for the white house here, and what you have is an insurance commissioner in california who i talked to yesterday i posed to him that question and he said there's not a lot that he can do. he has no ability to make the insurance companies bring those folks back, but californians are lucky. they are able to use a state exchange, where they can go in, it's been working better than, the federal exchange and they can sign up for insurance on their
